Pembrokeshire's landscape is full of different terrains - there's the coves and caves worn into the cliff faces, the climbs to the top of the Preseli Hills, and the gentle countryside walks for those who just want to drift away with their thoughts.

North Pembrokeshire

From New Quay to Fishguard; wild, rugged, and spectacular is how one would define this area.

With a multitude of little coves, caverns, and beautiful beaches to explore, the North is very popular with walkers and cyclists all year round and will never cease to amaze. Cardigan Bay is sure to delight with its resident population of bottle nose dolphins, porpoises, and grey seals, as well as some of Britain’s rarest birds and marine species. Boat trips can be enjoyed from the bustling market town of Cardigan.

Begin your walk at the very start of the Coastal Path at the wonderful Poppit Sands beach. Newport has it all; a spectacular setting, sea, castle, and mountain. Carn Ingli forms the back drop where the River Nevern meets the sea, enjoy the beautiful golden Newport sands beach while there is plenty to do with shops, restaurants, water sports and golf. Follow the coast round to the picturesque harbour town of Fishguard, which is the setting for a number of films and host to music and arts festivals as well as maritime and sailing events.

North West Pembrokeshire

The Wildlife Coast. The Northwest coast seems to attract the dolphins, seals, and the occasional whale! The Coastal Path here offers many a walker a magical time linking a number of picturesque fishing villages largely unchanged by time, with hidden inlets, sand and shingle beaches, and glistening rock pools just waiting to be explored - many approached via footpaths.

Many of the County’s finest activities can be experienced; Coasteering is a real thrill and a perfect way to get up close to the sea, The Blue Lagoon, made famous by the Red Bull Diving Championship, can be found in this section of coast as well as one of the best beaches in the world, Whitesands, which is popular with surfers - professionals and beginners alike. A trip to or around Ramsey Island should also not be missed while St. Davids, the smallest city in the country, has an abundance of fine restaurants and galleries as well as the stunning Cathedral and Bishop’s Palace.

West Pembrokeshire

The West starts in the picturesque harbour village of Solva, running round the coast through Newgale beach - reputedly the finest in the county and ideal for surfing - and on through the stunning bays and beaches; Broad Haven, with its long stretch of sand with level access making it popular with families, contrasting with the picturesque cove of Little Haven over the headland. Round the stunning St Ann’s Head and moving up the reaches of the Western Cleddau Estuary.

Some of Pembrokeshire’s most stunning beaches are here - the sheltered village of Dale makes it ideal for sailing enthusiasts; take a boat trip to Skomer Island to really appreciate the amazing bird life and see the Puffins when they return to breed. At the heart of this area lies the bustling market town of Haverfordwest and, in contrast to the coast, the rugged beauty of the Preseli Hills and rolling countryside.

South Pembrokeshire

The South is famous for its long sandy beaches starting on the south side of the estuary, travelling round Angle and the surrounding beaches; in fact the surfer’s beach of Freshwater West has been the setting for 2 blockbuster films - Harry Potter and Robin Hood. There are a wealth of seaside villages and towns to explore, many with colourful histories and majestic castle ruins including Manorbier and Pembroke. Tenby is the jewel in the crown, with a vibrant nightlife and social scene, closely followed by Saundersfoot, while Narberth inland has a growing reputation for its boutique shopping and restaurants.

For those that enjoy messing around on the water and a slower pace to life, the east side of the secret waterway teaming with birds and wildlife is a must, with its sleepy villages and local pubs. We have also spread across the border into Carmarthenshire - stop off at Laugharne the birth place of Dylan Thomas, Llansteffan on the estuary with its golden beach or, in contrast, escape to our stunning cottages at the foot of the Brechfa Forest which are perfect for walkers and cyclists.
